First of all, I need to clarify, I am still learning, I am 30 days into my sourdough journey, and I do not claim to be an expert or anything like that.  When I took my class, she gave me her bread recipe and techniques, most of that has not changed in what I am posting here. If you have a different method for proofing, or baking, awesome 🙂 Please adapt to your needs and preferences.

For this loaf, I actually used a freshly pulled shot of blonde espresso in the mix. I *love* my Nespresso pixie, and the blonde shots are so delicious! I actually honestly really love both of my Nespresso machines (not sponsored, but hey Nespresso, I wouldn’t mind!) My days begin at 3am, and having a variety of coffee/espresso at the touch of my fingertips at that time is invaluable.

We paired this loaf with one of my favorite Starbucks drinks, which is no longer on the menu, but you can still order it. The chocolate almond milk shaken espresso, except we used oat milk 🙂
